installation is working, however sometimes dialogs are empty, but you can guess what is istaller asking.
SPSS 8.0 runs successfully.Works also:
What does not
drawing scree plots (factor analysis)
for all graphics - when try to draw it, SPSS crashes
in output window "Title" section is empty and it "reserves" a lot of space. But you can delete it.
menu and dialog fonts look strange
printing - actually it works, but output is very small. For instance - table which should be 1/3 of the A4 paper is 1,5 x 1 cm size.
What was not tested
SPSS is considered as a killer application for research institutes, social science universities and marketing research companies. I know many people which say that SPSS is the only reason why they are not on Linux. I also contacted SPSS representatives and they also share that opinion. But unfortunately there will be no Linux port for SPSS (except server version), because it would be too complicated to port SPSS to Linux because of drawing functions (SPSS people told me that). So this is quite important application.
